I'm working in London for 3 days a week for the next few months and I've been trying out a different hotel each week. It's proving to be quite an interesting experiment as I find the best last minute deal I can for my budget of £120 per night or less.
This hotel was ok, my room was on the 20th floor of the Tower Wing.
Reception is a little slow and laborious but once you get your room card the hotel is good, it has a number of restaurants, cafes and bars and a little shop, which is great if you're travelling on your own as I am.
The room was comfortable, great bed, tea, coffee, biscuits etc. The TV channels were very limited so I ended up watching Netflix on my laptop, but I thought that £15 for 24 hours of wifi was quite steep, particularly as I was staying for 2 nights.
The gym was small but well equipped and welcoming, the pool was great.
The hotel's literally over the road from Edgware Road Tube station (4 stops on the Bakerloo line from Oxford Circus), but use the road crossings above ground, as the underpass is full of people sleeping in it!
It is walkable from Oxford Street, but took me about 45 minutes, so not great with a suitcase.More
